  1. I think everyone is butt hurt about these guys leaving and not the fact that we came in fifth based of there choices

    1. Exactly! This season was a comprehensive failure. Dad to see them go of course but its clearly a new cycle at Milan.

      1. Same reasoning as my below comment, if it’s a new cycle, then all the other parties should be out of the equation as well. Directors are just pieces of the whole operation.

        It’s not a new cycle if your key persons (the ones who also played a role on the comprehensive failure – according to you) are still here and still hold a key role.

    2. they are, porbably needsoem lotion. throwing a tantrum like the dudes who paid a billion are gonna just pack up and leave.. lol

    3. Based on their choices – I assumed you mean the directors. Well it’s unfair to put the blame on one party. The directors, the scouts, the coach, even the players played their parts in this result. They had their own shares. Whether it’s a success or a failure.

      Thus it’s a weird reasoning if only one party, the directors, who were under fire (and literally fired) based on this current season. Working as a team, the scout and also the coach should admit their responsibility.

      While on the contrary, the same scout and the coach are given even more trust after this ‘so-called ‘ fail season. Sounds weird enough?

  2. Does that mean? @Poli will be, our new Sporting Director?🤔 Who assembled Prime Barca, and build a treble winning side? And he has never, lost any player, on free transfer.. In fact he sold, Neymar for €222m to PSG in 2017!🤯😯

    Let’s hope @Poli can sell, Origi and Rebic for combined €400m and use that money on Haaland for CF, Messi for RW, De Bruyne for playmaker, Enzo and Bellingham for Central Midfield (because of Bennacer’s injury), Vinicius to rotate Rafael Leao and Ferland Mendy to rotate Theo.. And, if there is any remaining budget; he will sign Cancelo or Pavard, to alternate with Calabria in RB and Sergio Ramos, to alternate with Tomori and Thiaw.. Good times ahead of us!

    In fact Barca, has been on a decline, since his departure in 2018!

    1. That American thinks Milan should do their business like Ajax or Dortmund. Buy cheap youngsters and sell them at a higher amount. I bet we won’t be able to be in the top 6 next year then let’s see what @Poli will say.

  3. cardinale you might own the club by name but what you seem to oversee is that you in fact are only a custodian of the club amd you are doing a lousy job at it. The takeover of yours completely affected last years mercato but you wants to put the blame on maldini when our failings is largely due to you. #CardinaleOut

  4. It’s the optics eh. You straight out fire Maldini but had a meeting in Milan with Massara. Likely they were offering him a different role but he probably refused. And if I were him I’d do the same. The choices made were collective choices not individual ones as recent articles may make it out to seem (for instance, Maldini didn’t just go out and purchase Adli, it had to have come from somewhere). Anyhow, the main point is Otherwise they could have just fired both yesterday and made it easier on the Comms team. This is indicative of how much they value one over the other.

    1. I think that since they have a year left on their contracts, they are still contractually tied to Milan and get paid by Milan.
      Massara wanted to get a buyout and get released from his contract so he can go and work at another club. With lawyers being involved, probably took extra time to agree on all the details

  5. Seriously… one sentence to “thank” on the statement?
    This whole fiasco is a bloody disgrace, Cardinale. Imagine what will happen if the youngsters “moneyball” get brings us back to midtable purgatory.
